The R. J. Taylor, Jr. Foundation promotes genealogical research in Georgia by providing grants to individuals and organizations to defray the cost of publishing approved projects (print and digital). In order to be eligible for consideration, projects must utilize records of a genealogical nature by way of abstracting, extracting and transcribing. A significant portion of the project must contain genealogical records concerning Georgia citizens who were residents prior to 1851.
The Foundation will consider any eligible project, but note that the Foundation has also established priorities for projects in counties that have few published records.
The purpose of the R. J. Taylor, Jr. Foundation Trust is to promote genealogical research and study in Georgia in conjunction with the Georgia Genealogical Society and the Georgia Archives.
Grants are made to individuals and organizations to defray the expense of publishing (print or digital) records of a genealogical nature from public and private sources. The primary emphasis is on preserving and making available to the public genealogical data concerning citizens of Georgia who were residents prior to 1851.
